I'm going to study a certification in translation - probably, interpretation as well-.

I'm considering UMass, USC and U of Arizona. It will be an online course.

Have you studied in any of these universities? Which course do you think would be the best one?

Aida, some of my colleagues graduated from many unis--including ones in question--or completed distance and online courses a while ago, yet as far as you've got some 12y+ hands-on exp both as an English/French-Spanish translator and interpreter in technical, medical, and business fields, I can't help wondering...

You didn't name specific criteria for degrees/certificates or courses/specializations at accredited schools or whether it's just about free online educational courses and new fields, so no specific answer.

First, at the moment you seem not sure WHY you might need something and WHAT FOR exactly, making the choice too wide and vague.

Second, although some comments on the institutions/organizations may be of help, they are about the PAST and INDIVIDUAL exp, not yours, making it but rather subjective and outdated response-produced cues.

Perhaps, you could share what you would like, what your needs and priorities?
